To determine the highest-earning counties, Stacker used data from the U.S. Census Bureau to rank counties by 2019 5-year estimated median household income.

Montgomery County is one of the highest-earning counties in Pennsylvania, according to a new report by Stacker.

Montgomery County ranked second with a median household income of $91,546, which is 48.3 percent above the state median as well as 45.7 percent over the national median.

The county boasts nearly half of all households—or 45.8 percent—that are earning more than $100,000. That puts it at No. 64 among all counties nationwide.

Meanwhile, houses that earn less than $15,000 comprise 5.4 percent of total households, which is the 3,003 highest rate among all counties nationwide.

The majority of the surrounding counties also ranked highly, with Philadelphia collar counties taking all top four spots on the list.

Chester County placed first in highest-earning counties, Bucks County placed third, and Delaware County came in fourth.
